I graduated from therapy yesterday after 8 months of extraordinary treatment. When I started I could barely walk due to arthritis and a torn meniscus in my knee. Now I can walk a mile!! I will be forever grateful to the entire staff at the Watchung Performance Rehab center. I thought for sure that I would need a knee replacement. They have many different non surgical treatments. Over the course of my treatment, I had HA injections, stem cell and PRP injections, and lots of exercises designed specifically for me. This combination worked!!! I highly recommend this wonderful group and would use them again without hesitation.

I went there with many problems relating to arthritis hoping for improvement to one knee. They were great sorting out each of my needs. My knees are much better after injections & stem with prp followed by pt. My back& neck are much better with chiropractic. You can’t heal the arthritis but I am much stronger. They have a large staff whom they treat very well. So, they are wonderful.
